Description

Trying to get a free computer that I can put linux on and play with stuff like deploying code with capistrano, configuring servers with chef.

This code should notify me with growl within 5 minutes of someone placing a free stuff notice on craigslist for my city, if its title matches /comp/i Though, I wrote it such that I can pass it multiple words to watch for (though right now can't accept multiple cities).

Usage

To turn on: $ cron.rb comp
To turn off: $ cron.rb
To see what it did: $ crontab -l

Dependencies

(note that ruby-growl is Mac only)


This code is unmaintained.

If you do something interesting with it, let me know so I can be happy.
